So far i dont like what they have done to:
  • Windows Media Player
  • The Control Panel
  • And Games Explorer
Apart from that everything else i dont like has been changeable, like making the taskbar a normal size with icons displaying text next to them etc. 7 is quite good and if they would just fix the above items id be well chuffed

They took out Windows Calendar after i was used to it and used it for all my reminders. Now i don't know what to use for windows 7. Other than that, i love it so far. Definitely a bit much faster.

I can't believe people still are sqabbling about Windows 7

There's nothing wrong with it, WMP12 IMO is a quality app (much better than 11) and the control panel is nice & navigable. The games explorer is cool once it detects all your games

I really dont like what they have done to windows media player and feel as though il go back to winamp because of it, but if you like it then lucky you The control panel is ugly as sin if you ask me but anyway how do you get games explorer to detect all your games as so far it only detects 3 of mine and they removed the customize option on the right click menu making games explorer c***

ha ha Tews. No i really like windows 7, no really i do lol.

Its just those 3 things i think they have messed up. If you go to this link 7 Things We Hate About Windows 7 - windows 7 - Gizmodo and look at No. 5 and No. 7 they say pretty much what i think about media player and the control panel.

I think the EULA needs beefing up - something like this added:

Standard Disclaimer

Give you something to read while it installs.
